No wood or coal for serviced fee but a great regular all the same. Improved track from Holdsworth although little overgrown nearing Totara Creek. Entrance via Waiohine easier on legs lol

A welcome site after a fair bit of boulder hopping and some challenging (well, for me anyways) waist deep waterfalls in gorge country. Well worth the visit.

Old track in ends abruptly at large slip. More than I cared to take on. New track hard slog going in but doddle coming out. 5.5hrs going in 4.5hrs out.

Fantastic, big capacity, serviced hut. Had fire cranking with 2 x other visitors. Walked in via Waiohine track from campsite. Well maintained and pleasant 3-4hr walk following river.

Still a great little hut with a commendable library. Well worth getting cold & wet for although I'm sure it would be even better in summer when you can enjoy the camp fire area outside complete with bench seats =)

One of a kind spot. Cute wee hut. Get the fire cranking, switch on the solar powered lights and cross fingers for clear sunrise/sunset and you wont be disappointed!

Ended up getting flown out by SAR after losing track between this hut and Omaru Stream. Track badly overgrown, heavily blocked by windfall and very poorly marked. Do NOT attempt unless very competent at navigating or have good previous experience on track.

Nice little hut of the usual current DOC template but a welcome shelter or pit stop in a great little corner of the Tararuas. Watertank plus ample fresh river water nearby. Swimming holes aplenty on way in if coming up river or not far from hut otherwise.

One of the best huts I've ever stayed in! A cosy little hut with ample dry wood and great insulation plus a terrific deck and benched fire area outside. Very intimate (read NO privacy and you will have to get on with other guests!) but terrific for this reason. You will get your shorts wet but it's well worth a visit.
